Kevin Costner in Talks to Star in Guillermo del Toro-produced MIDNIGHT DELIVERY

     July 15, 2013


After playing one of Superman’s two fathers in this summer’s Man of Steel, it appears that Kevin Costner is ready to lead a thriller of his own.  THR reports that the actor is in talks to star in the thriller Midnight Delivery, which is being produced by Guillermo del Toro.  Based on an idea by del Toro, the story centers on a man who turns himself into a drug mule in order to save his daughter’s life.  Luther creator Neil Cross co-wrote the script with del Toro, and while Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk was previously attached to direct, that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.  The production is eyeing a fall shoot though, so we should hear more word on the director front shortly.

Costner most recently wrapped the sports dramedy Draft Day and McG’s thriller Three Days to Kill.  He’ll be seen later this year opposite Chris Pine in Kenneth Branagh’s Jack Ryan.
